Raised in the faith, attending Sunday school and observing the Sabbath; family, friends, school, foot-ball(soccer) this was his devout. The vast world he was ignorant about; a sheltered life until his reality was an experience expression "It Cuts Like A Knife", it was his first and as it is said "The First Cut Is The Deepest" He was threading the thin line between love and innocence. At age 19, he began his indulgence his first anointing by a woman's essence. Arrested by indulgence hence forth set on the path and took the fork in the road seeking to unravel how deep the hole goes. Allured by each new enticing revelations andneglecting his faith in lieu of self explorations. As he drifts farther and farther away from his ethics and moral foundations; aligning him self with acquaintances of good and bad affiliations, he was naive to his elders indignation. Alcohol, parties and strip joints the culmination to a unwritten right of passage to the brother-hood of man-hood. He now stood before the mirror of his soul unable to recognize him self anymore, deceived to believe he was as hopeless as a penny with a hole in it. He felt cold and hollow when the winds of trials blew, as though there was a hole in his core. It was then the voice of his soul cried out....saying pray, for hope floats and by it's sacred waters should charteryour course. Once lost but now found the prodigal one has found himself reborn from a self destructive life. Now stronger that ever as of a phoenix reborn of its own ashes.
